Plains Camp


African explorer-style tents are on offer at this wilderness camp which overlooks a spectacular plain and its awesome game in the very heart of the Kruger National Park.

Rhino Walking Safaris offers exclusive guided walking trails with expert guides in the Kruger National Park. An intimate camp of 4 stylish en-suite tents from where you experience Africa’s sights, sounds, scents and textures of nature on foot, and revel in encounters with big game at their own level.

For the adventurous, a walk from Plains Camp to the Sleepout Decks can be booked, where the guide cooks a traditional South African “braai” over an open fire, and the night is spent under the stars listening to the night sounds so far removed from civilisation. 


Our Thoughts

Uniquely, the only authentic tented property which lies within the Kruger National Park. The main activity is walking safaris, but a major recommendation would be to sample a night in the open under the stars on one of the sleep-out platforms.

  • Library
  • Lounge and dining area
  • Fireplace

Whether a mug of steaming black coffee at breakfast, a delicious high tea for an afternoon break or a leisurely banquet for dinner, you can enjoy all of your meals served in the main dining room as part of your authentic safari experience in the heart of Kruger.

Furnished in a luxury African explorer style, the 4 tents will give you all the comforts of your home, you'll find well-equipped accommodation without losing the wild allure of Africa. All tents, elegantly decorated, overlook the stunning Timbitene plain and are ideal to spend a serene and relaxing holiday with a touch of retro 19th century style.
